Students who wish to take a workshop for graduate credit but who have not completed the regular College of Graduate Studies admission process will be permitted to register in the College of Graduate Studies as non-degree students. Graduate workshops are graded on an S/U (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) basis.

Certain Youngstown State University workshop courses, upon approval of the graduate advisor, may later be applied to degree work if regular admission to the College of Graduate Studies is obtained and if those courses are part of the degree program. Workshop courses are those specifically designated as such in this catalog or by the Graduate Council.
